 The Troy Amateur Radio Association meets in person on the Third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM at the Watervliet Senior Center, 1501 Broadway, Watervliet, NY 12189

Picnics occur in place of the regular meetings in July and August at Hudson Shores Park at 6 PM.


TARA has been affiliated with the ARRL since it was formed in 1991 and in October of 2000 we became a Special Service Club.
TARA is dedicated to providing new HAMS with a place to meet other HAMS as they get started in amateur radio. Most meetings start out with the typical business meeting followed by a "social hour" with refreshments, thus giving everyone a chance to get acquainted.  TARA provides examinations for prospective HAMS, as well as upgrade exams for existing HAMS.
Get Involved. No matter what your interests are: DX, Contesting, Rag-chewing, Public Service , Volunteer Examiner, Instructor, Repeaters, Packet, RTTY, PSK31, SSTV, AMTOR, CW, SSB, HF, VHF, UHF, or just plain operating, someone in TARA has done it and is there to help you.
